Just having a break from digging over a couple of beds. Not really the right time of year for it, being a bit too warm now! Still can't complain after all that rotten weather.
Last year I had 3 beds of dahlias but quite a few didn't make it through the winter, so the ones that are ok were dug up and moved into one bed leaving the other ones free for some brassicas. The wretched bindweed needs digging out first though and the poppies clearing once all the petals have fallen off. Also need to get rid of a few hollyhocks that have strayed inside the fence, but the roots are so tough hubby will have to chop them out with a mattock!
The wild area is my favourite place to sit at the moment. It's just at that lovely time when everything is looking lush and blowsy, before it starts going to seed and turning into hay. It's full of insects and birds and I could happily spend ages just watching them and trying to identify all the flora and fauna! I think that's called procrastination though, must get back to the digging :(
